Away In The Hills
I am taking it easy in Koottickal.
Friends from England are visiting and we have taken to the hills.
Anu, my houseboy, accompanies us:
There is much to be said for finding one’s bag unpacked and clothes neatly hanging, just five minutes after arriving at a new destination!
And now I sit looking out across the verandah, while my friends stroll through local rubber plantations.
The musical sounds of gently-spoken, Malayalam chatter trickle down from the tree-house, where Anu and our driver, Solly, relax and enjoy the views.
All is well.
